Coach Profile

Drew Gansmiller

Mr. Gansmiller has several years of experience developing and writing network and security policy for the U.S. Department of Energy. His work has given him extensive insight into NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technical) policy requirements as well as all aspects of U.S. Department of Defense STIGs (Security Technical Implementation Guide). He is known for his active learning approach to IT training, information assurance, and cyber-security. .

His classes are engaging seminars for students, rather than the typical “death by PowerPoint” seminar where the trainer reads a set of PowerPoint slides point-by-bullet point. Typically, his classes are divided into three chunks, one-third lecture, one-third discussion, and one-third lab. Instruction involves less than 25 percent conventional slide show.
